Neat Truck
By Dakdude on


2005 Dodge Dakota 4dr Quad Cab SLT 4WD SB (3.7L 6cyl 4A)


I find the Dakota a fun truck to drive. It feels very solid and handles well. I like the interior and exterior design, vey well thought out. One exception would be the location of the transmission selector. It needs to be more centrally located. Sound system is really good. Some things that could stand improvement are the fuel economy. Although it stckered at 17 city and 20 HWY (I think), I have yet to break 17 on the HWY! Also, 4WD gets a little stubborn at low speeds in snow, kind of like surging or something. All in all, however, I really like the Dakota and would recommend it to anyone looking for a tough midsize truck to have fun with.

Best Features

Interior and exterior looks. Driveability

Worst Features

Needs better fuel economy. Very stiff handling, especially when going over bumps in a turn. Breaking could be a lot better.
